So i have the boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion. and i'm gonna go to the guitar center and trade up for a better quality boss distortion pedal, cuz its roland/boss days at GC (Check the website). so i want something that will give my tone a boost and eliminate a little feedback, but can still give me that great boost for the Chorus of "Stockholm Syndrome' by muse. it should be able to havve lots of feedback too if you know what i am meaning i use a mesa boogie mark v combo amp.

hmmm.....
You probably won't get much for your BOSS pedal, but-
I strongly suggest NOT getting another BOSS distortion/OD
If you're on a budget (you shouldn't be if you have a Mark V) get a Bad Monkey.
If you're not, get a Tubescreamer or an OCD or something of the sorts.
Will it be used as a clean boost, or will it add saturation as well?
You could also look into modding the OS2 as well.
What about your current sound don't you like right now?

Also.....

i meant that it should be able to have lots of feedback when working, but currently when my OS2 is not switched on, it still adds feedback. i've checked my chain of pedals. AND, i've been saving up for that mark v for like 3 years so yeah i'm kinda tight on $$$. who makes the bad monkey?

the bad monkey is made by Digitech. great pedal.

No.


Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

Digitech, but it's not crap quality like their usual stuff. I'd still recommend going with an Ibanez TS9

Imagine the part of the ballsack where occasionally old poo sticks to the pubes and hardens, and you then have to pull out, but as an amp. That's an MG.


Greatest quote of all time?

I think so...

Then I would definitely go for the Digitech Bad Monkey if you're on a tight budget.

edit- TS9 would work too, just a bit more money....

IMO the Mark V should be good enough for metal without a boost. That said, you could use it to push your tubes more for some breakup, or you could use it for a gain boost. Still, you should alread. Have a metal sound out of your Mark V.

How are you not getting a metal sound out of your Mark V? You should be getting a nice tight high gain tone unless you don't know how the EQ works.

I wouldn't recommend a TS or variant for a Mark series though, it'd be too middy for me. I can't recommend anything cheap but if you can afford a MKV, I'd say get an XOTiC AC Booster.
